What happened to Renee Zellweger? Plastic surgery, or just natural aging?

It seems that the answer to this question is, “a little from column A, and a little from column B”.

Bloggers everywhere are saying that Renee doesn’t look like herself, and I have to agree. It’s pretty impressive how much she does not look like herself, which is not always a sure fire sign of plastic surgery, but it certainly can be, and in her case I think it is… at least in part.

Nicole Kidman’s breast augmentation… round 2

nicole kidman breast implantsA recent photo from RadarOnline has restarted a long-standing buzz about Nicole Kidman’s breast augmentation surgery, which we originally wrote about here four years ago when it appeared that she had her implants revised or removed because they looked too fake.

This time around, they look a little better, but I still think there are a few ways that this result could have been better, especially form someone like Nicole who will always be in the spotlight, and guaranteed to generate a paparazzi photo frenzy everywhere she goes:

Actress Kaley Cuoco tells Cosmo about her breast augmentation surgery!

breast implants in celebrities

The Big Bang Theory’s Kaley Cuoco recently told Cosmo Mag that her decision to have breast augmentation surgery was one of the “best decisions I ever made.” Back then she starred on an ABC show called 8 Simple Rules, and since then she’s not only moved up in the entertainment world, but she’s also dated Superman, Henry Cavill last summer, and is now married to professional tennis player Ryan Sweeting.

Dr. Nicholas Vendemia, a New York City plastic surgeon who specializes in breast augmentation surgery, says: “I applaud Kaley for her candidness about a very private subject, and I’m glad to see someone proud of their decision to have cosmetic surgery. There is a reason why breast augmentation surgery is at the top of list of the most popular and most satisfying procedures year after year… it’s a great operation with great results.”

Earlobe repair after too much bling on the ear-ring!

earlobe repair surgeryRed carpets are always studded with fashionable celebs and actual studs, the heavy kind…

While there’s no doubt that big beautiful bling is in for high class events, it might be a good idea to keep the heavy earrings in your jewelry box for ordinary days. Wearing heavy earrings too frequently can lead to a severe weakening of the earlobe, and in some cases that weakening can lead to the earring tearing completely through the lobe. This can also happen if your earring gets caught on something accidentally and tears through, but it’s actually  more common as a gradual process from wearing heavy earrings too often.

The good news is that this is a fixable problem. Earlobe repair surgery is a fairly simple procedure that can be done under local anesthesia in the office. The procedure takes about an hour for a single side, and about 90 minutes for both sides. There are usually a few very tiny sutures that are removed after the 5th or 6th day, and the lobe will be a little tender for a day or two, but other than that there is essentially no real downtime.

If you have any questions about earlobe repair surgery, please feel free to give us a call at 917-703-7069 or send us a message through our website by clicking here.

An Otoplasty for Obama?

barak obama ears, ear pinning surgery, otoplasty, ears stick outThere are only a handful of people who can be recognized by their silhouettes alone.

Michael Jordan’s silhouette features his high flying slam dunk pose. Michael Jackson’s silhouette brings his famous moonwalk to life. Slash from GNR rocks out with his top hat and signature leaning back guitar stance. And even though he’s not a rock star or professional athlete, Barak Obama belongs to this small group of silhouette celebrities… all thanks to hit ears!

Of course we would never expect the President to change anything about his stately ears now that they are world famous, but if he ever wanted to, he would be the perfect candidate for otoplasty, or ear pinning, surgery.

Miss America Contestant Having a Double Mastectomy to Prevent Breast Cancer

Allyn Rose, a 24 year old contestant in the upcoming Miss America Pageant, has decided to have a prophylactic (preventative) double mastectomy in order to prevent the disease that is in her genes and killed her mother.

Allyn’s mom was only 27 when she was diagnosed with breast cancer, and was also found to be a carrier of the BRCA gene that drastically increases Allyn’s chance of the disease. Many other patients with the breast cancer gene have chosen to have their breast tissue removed preventatively, and then have a single-stage breast reconstruction at the same time as their mastectomy so that they can continue living a normal life without the worry of developing breast cancer.

While some think this is an extreme measure, others feel that it’s very subjective decision that each individual woman with the breast cancer gene has to make.

New York Plastic Surgeon Dr. Nicholas Vendemia says, “It’s a huge decision for a woman to decide to have a prophylactic mastectomy in the face of the BRCA gene, but it’s also a huge decision not to have the surgery. Breast cancer is one of the most deadly cancers for women, so I can certainly understand why a woman in a high risk situation may opt for peace of mind rather than constantly worrying about developing the disease. That level of worry can be quite emotionally draining after a while and definitely shouldn’t be taken for granted. That being said, surgery is a very big step that is certainly not without its own set of considerations and consequences. It’s an entirely subjective decision, but I’m happy that we have great techniques and technology to help any of these women regardless of which strategy they decide is right for them.”

In regards to Allyn’s comment that she is “choosing life over beauty”, Dr. Vendemia said, “I don’t think Allyn is 100% accurate with this statement. I’ve seen so many beautiful breast reconstructions in my own hands and in the hands of my colleagues that I don’t necessarily think anyone, including Allyn, is losing their beauty after surgery. In fact, women who are doing this preventatively have the most beautiful and most natural reconstructions because they do not have to go through chemotherapy and radiation which can significantly affect the results of reconstructive procedures in women who already have breast cancer.”

What do you think about this situation? If you had the breast cancer gene, would you rather have the surgery and peace of mind? Or would you rather wait and see if the gene actually causes a problem first and risk actually getting breast cancer?

Will Obamacare pay for Juvederm?

I felt bad for President Obama last night.

Not because Mitt made him wish he had a teleprompter, but because his smile lines were out of control! He’s definitely gotten older during his first term, and why wouldn’t he? He inherited one of the biggest messes of any US president, and I’m sure he’s been working nonstop since he took office four years ago.

In any case, I don’t normally feel this strongly about plastic surgery procedures, even though I am a plastic surgeon, but I wanted to put some Juvederm in his smile lines so badly last night! I couldn’t help myself :)
